Our programme has been extensively trialed and tested in early childhood centres. We have crafted a programme which uses songs, games and activities all while exploring themes that kids love! We encourage students to participate and learn at their own pace, in a fun and creative programme designed and developed specifically for their age group.
Our programme focuses on developing confidence and social skills through the exploration of movement and dance skills.
Our programme provides a foundation which aids the children in future movement and dance training as well as their development and transition into pre-school and into school.
We understand that young children learn holistically and thus our moto- Discover, Develop, Dance- as the child discovers their body through movement, we aid them in developing fundamental skills such as balance, rhythm, coordination, listening, confidence and creativity through the elements of dance and movement.
At JitterBubs Movement and Dance, we specialise in onsite work, meaning we developed our services for Early Childhood Centres. Our programme was designed to work alongside the principles and four strands of Te Whāriki the NZ Early Childhood Curriculum.
Our programme is designed around what we call the Fundamental Five, these being the five fundamental movement skills which we aim to develop through our time with the children. Using these movement and dance skills as the mean, we aim to develop the child as a whole.
By developing physical as well as social and emotional skill we aid in providing a foundation for future dance and movement training as well as for the child's transition into preschool and on to school.
